Crime Stoppers News of the Week

March 9, 2017

Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

As some of you may know, Crime Stoppers recently announced that the maximum reward for tips leading to the arrest of persons has been increased from the old maximum of $1000 to a new maximum reward of $2,500. This new maximum reward is permanent and is not tied to any specific case or category of crimes. If you have any information about a serious criminal matter such as homicide or kidnapping, or crimes with aggravating circumstances such as those with youthful or elderly victims, or even matters pertaining to gun violence, Crime Stoppers now has an option to pay you an amount well above the old $1000 limit. As always, we guarantee anonymity to our tipsters- there is no way we could give out any information about who you are because when we take a tip anonymously, we never get your name.

So if you have any information about criminal activity, call Crime Stoppers  at 788-8427 or leave a tip on this website (cashfortips.us). Remember we want your information, not your name- and now we’ll pay you up to $2500.

Threatening Notes Found at Glenwood High School

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week

 February 16, 2017

 

Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

 

Crime Stoppers is looking for information about incidents which occurred on consecutive days at Glenwood High School in Chatham on
February 8th and 9th. The incidents, which consisted of written messages on walls in bathrooms, were of a threatening nature and referred to possible shooting and bombing incidents on school grounds.

Although security and administrative officials took immediate action to safeguard students and staff, and nobody was physically harmed by the threats, these incidents disrupted the school day and impacted the proper educational environment which our students richly deserve. Incidents such as these are felonies in the State of Illinois and can be prosecuted with possible fines or jail sentences.

Police Still Need Tips in Alaysia Bennett Case

Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week

February 9, 2017

 

Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

 

Just after the first of the year Crime Stoppers announced that we’re going to pay a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person, or persons, who were responsible for the shooting death of 19 year old Alaysia Bennett. As you recall, Bennett was an occupant of a vehicle along with four other persons, including a three year old baby, when she was gunned down for no apparent reason.  Detectives with the Springfield Police Department are actively investigating this case and following up on leads as they develop. We want the public to know that the $5000 cash reward is still in play and it’ll be given to any person who anonymously comes forward with information that leads to the arrest of the person responsible for the shooting.

If you have any information about this homicide, your anonymous call to the Crime Stoppers tipline at 788-8427 could earn you $5000 cash. You can also anonymously leave a tip on our website, cashfortips.us; remember we want your information, not your name.
